Acrylic Painting on Canvas -- Pixel Painting 2, Kintsugi

Here is my second "Pixel Painting," created with cellular automata.

This one is called, "Kintsugi," named after the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with lacquer dusted or mixed with powdered gold in the cracks.

Each pixel has many layers of paint, making the colors rich and complex. The colors are mostly light blue, gray, black, and many shades of gold. The blacks vary from green to blue to purple to burgundy. There are lots of colors in there for depth and contrast.

 In the mean time, I bought a fifth canvas. So there will be at least five of these 20" by 30" cellular automata paintings before I finish the series.

 20" by 30", unframed. The sides are painted black so it doesn't need a frame..

Signed and dated. I sealed it with three coats of acrylic clear coat to make it a little shiny and protect it from scratches. Looks nice. Find it in my Etsy shop.

  1. Gwen, your work is beautiful and interesting. Like the math/science aspect added to it.

    1. Thank you. Math provides a seemingly endless source of inspiration.
